2nd coat of paint question


If I paint a second coat on one particular area of my deck will it stand out over the rest? Theres one area im not as happy with and think a second coat could fix but dont want to make it look "noticably different"

Thanks

What's the deck the deck made of?
If it's pressure treated plan on a life time of sanding and repainting.
Never should have been painted!!!

Is this a pressure treated deck?
If so plan on a life time of sanding and repainting.
Very bad idea !!!!
Should have been stained instead.

If you can feather paint in skillfully, it might look "OK". If not, then it won't work well.

They discuss feathering with a roller in Tip 5 here.

With a brush here.


There are different ways to do it depending on the situation, but that will get you started with the idea.
